The Ecclesiastical Faculty of the Boston College School of Theology and Ministry seeks applicants for a full-time tenured or tenure-track position in moral theology.
Candidates should be prepared to teach courses appropriate for the Master of Divinity and other theology and ministry degree programs at the master’s and doctoral level. The courses should cover fundamental moral theology and one or more specific areas of moral theology: e.g., biblical ethics, context-based ethics, environmental ethics, sexual ethics, social ethics, and theological bioethics.
Candidates must be committed to core Catholic teachings and approach their teaching and research with sensitivity to pastoral needs and cultural diversity in interdisciplinary, multi-cultural, and multi-lingual ways. Applicants must demonstrate strong teaching and research ability. Candidates should be willing to contribute to the formation of the diverse student body: Jesuits and other candidates approved for ordination studies, and women and men trained for lay ecclesial ministries and for service rooted in faith. Applicants also should be willing to mentor and advise students writing theses and dissertations to fulfill requirements in the School of Theology and Ministry, particularly its S.T.L. and S.T.D., as well as M.T.S. and Th.M. degrees.
To be considered, applicants must hold an earned doctorate in Catholic moral theology or Christian ethics. The possession of, or willingness and eligibility to pursue, a licentiate in sacred theology (STL) is a requisite criterion.
